Major corp offers massive funding to move employees to states allowing transgender surgeries

The online job search company Indeed believes that what pro-transgender advocates call "gender-affirming medical care" for children – "puberty-blocking" chemicals, opposite-sex hormone "treatments" and body-mutilating "surgeries" – is so important that it is now offering a "relocation benefit" of up to $10,000 for employees to relocate from a conservative state to a liberal state where such procedures are allowed.

Axios first reported Aug. 30 that beginning in July, the company began offering its "gender-affirming care relocation benefit" to "U.S.-based employees and immediate family members who seek gender-affirming care and live in a location where state laws or government-issued directives criminalize or restrict access to such medical care."

The new transgender moving "benefit" parallels actions in states like California that are encouraging people to flee red states that are banning or restricting transgender medical procedures on kids and encouraging them to come get their trans "procedures" in blue states. In 2022, California became the first transgender "sanctuary state," after Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsome signed the legislation into law.

NPR reported in April that Minnesota, Illinois, New Mexico, Maryland and Colorado "have passed bills designed to shield transgender health care through legal protections, health care coverage and access."

The Axios article by Sareen Habeshian – which (like most media coverage) was bereft of critical voices who object to "gender-transitioning" medical "care," particularly for minors – offered the following tendentious "big picture" summary: "Amid a flood of conservative efforts targeting transgender rights and gender-affirming care for minors, some companies are stepping up to offer support for their trans workers."

Employees approved for the benefit will receive a $10,000 flat-rate sum to cover relocation expenses, Indeed said.

“Our transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming colleagues are integral to our business and culture,” Misty Gaither, the company’s vice president of "diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging," told Axios. “We also believe that everyone has the right to make the healthcare decisions that they feel are right for themselves and their families.”

Blaze Media reported that the benefit also covers any tax liability generated by the payment. It said 30-year-old Sam Burger, a content creator at Indeed, used the benefit to move from Austin, Texas, to Denver, Colorado. The move cost Burger roughly $5,000, making the $10,000 benefit substantial.

The Blaze reporter Joseph MacKinnon used less politically correct language to cover the pro-trans policy: "$10,000 will reportedly be awarded to any transvestic, U.S.-based worker who seeks so-called "gender-affirming care" — a euphemism for destructive hormone therapies and genital mutilation procedures — but presently lives in an area where state laws or other government directives hinder the worker in obtaining it. ...The same benefit similarly applies to workers seeking to move their gender-dysphoric kids out of areas that presently protect children from undergoing irreversible 'gender-affirming care.'"
